Loutraki casino closes doors due to unpaid taxes


The casino at the Club Hotel Loutraki was forced to close its doors on Thursday after failing to pay about two million euros in taxes. The decision to close the casino was taken by a Greek Finance Ministry gaming commission on Thursday, pending a court hearing in Tripoli, Peloponnese, in the next few days.

Speaking to the Athens-Macedonian New Agency on Thursday, a company spokesman said the hotel's management had made every possible effort to collect the money owed to the state, falling short of about two million euros.
Meanwhile, on Thursday hotel employees called on the casino’s management to fully pay its tax arrears in order for the establishment to re-open.
